Missoni Inspired Dress
Inspired by the chevron fabric of Missoni, I went out searching for that zig zag print. I found this light knit in greens, tan, black and ivory. I lined it with an ivory, medium weight knit but left the sleeves shear. I used the selvage edge along the hem and stitched a strip of the selvage at the neck. I finished it off with some beads along the neck as well. They blend in and create a subtle detail.
